The Rest House by Tim Spicer Architects and Col Bandy Architects:

“The Rest Property in Flinders is the consequence of a lengthy-standing friendship among the clientele and architects. Their shared enjoy of sailing and the Australian coastline inspired the form of this property situated by the sea. Its butterfly roof mimics a boat’s hull, its angled walls guarding the backyard from the prevailing southerly winds that whip off Bass Strait. The developing and landscape have been designed to seamlessly integrate, utilising the slope of the land, the surrounding vegetation and views of the valley and ocean.

Made for an lively retiring couple, the first floor includes a huge kitchen, dining and living location and, at its easterly end, spills onto an entertaining terrace and backyard at the rear of the block. At the west end of the residence, the living room opens up onto a huge cantilevered deck, enclosed by stainless-steel mesh, which offers a protected vantage stage overlooking the valley under. All-natural light floods the massive glazed walls, while sliding doors to the north, east and west connect the internal spaces with the surrounding backyard and bush vistas.

A discreet passage connects the primary residing room to the master bedroom and ensuite, which supply views over the terraced garden and across the coastal landscape in direction of the ocean. The fall of the internet site provides way to the ground floor below which includes 2 guest bedrooms, wet regions and a lock-up garage. A huge water tank has been integrated into the style to type the base of the terrace above.

The residence supplies respond to the salty coastal area – concrete, glass, corten and galvanized steel – chosen for their inherent sturdiness. The design is purposefully comprehensive to accentuate the materials’ correct characteristics and structural connections.”
